A wedding with an oriental twist

In Japan, bride and groom wear the traditional wedding kimonos together with the oironaoshi, a tradition that dates back to the 14th century. They change cloths four times, to symbolize the bride’s propensity to embrace everyday routine. At the beginning of the ceremony, she wears the shiro-muku under her kimono: it is a white item of clothing that symbolizes innocence, than colours will change up to arrive to red, a colour that, according to Japanese tradition, drives away evil spirits and represents happiness in conjugal life.

Laura and Vittorio, my Italian wedding couple with a strong passion for oriental culture, wanted to follow the oironaoshi tradition, so I proposed a wedding day with colour changes both for set design and for stationery, starting with a total white religious ceremony and ending with total red for the cake cutting.

Shining black and red insets for the wedding announcement, with Japanese ideograms and a shining black sushi stick to close the invitation. The other stick closes the present box that are handed to guests at the end of the reception.

The church – Basilica di San Lorenzo in Milan, Italy – floral decoration and the bride’s bouquet are completely white with callas according to the vegetation style created by the floral designer Rudy Casati. The contrast between the whiteness of callas and the late Romanic style of the church is absolutely touching!

The guests have reached the location by a bus arranged by the wedding couple and have been welcomed at the Castello di Macconago with the sweet sound of a melody played by a string instruments trio: harp, violin and cello.

Orange is the second colour: an orange ribbon gently wraps the table black napkins. Lantern menus feature the names of the Japanese cities that the wedded couple will visit on their honeymoon.

The oriental buffet with Japanese, Indian and Thai influences leaves everybody breathless, due to the impeccable preparation and service by Catering Grasch.

After the main courses, here comes a very elegant geisha wearing a red kimono. On a dark tatami with red and orange cushions, she starts the rituals related to the tea ceremony.

Matcha tea inspired my vision: for this special wedding, I have asked the sugared almond artisan to create a treat with this peculiar tealeaf.

Total red for the dessert and sugared almonds buffet, which is red from the table runner to the floral compositions. The candy station has been spread all over the castle, using the tea tables that could be found in every castle room, so as to allow the guests relax while tasting delicious milk puddings and custards and excellent quality sugared almonds.

Finally, the great cake designer Emilia La Volpe has prepared the surprising 2 metres tall wedding cake I designed for this wedding: red velvet with lemon custard filled with whole raspberries. Peach tree flowers made of sugar gently link the various cake levels, laid on a lantern.

A well-realized project is the sum of every single element designed and created with care and attention. I adore designing and creating events that communicate joy and emotion. This is my mission. This is graceevent world.

Trick or Treat?

Halloween is coming and all kids are ready to walk in groups with their best friends and to knock on their neighbours’ doors: it’s a well-known cliché, where children play the part of miniature scary characters and adults give them some sweets in order to be spared by those mini-monsters’ “deadly” attacks. It’s always entertaining both for children and adults.

So simple, yet so fun and different every year, while our children grow, their make-up becomes more accurate and their spooky pumpkin lanterns turn into real masterpieces. Everything is tender, funny and scary at the same time, while the role of parents becomes more marginal, yet always irreplaceable, especially for what concerns organization! Home setting needs special care and parents know that, sometimes, time is too little to plan and to arrange everything as it deserves, especially if they work or have more little kids to look after. Thank goodness, the Web and many valuable Pinterest contributors provide loads of inspiration for the “crafty” among us. Yet, sometimes, spare time is a real issue. In that case, the help of a professional can save adults the unconfessed nuisance of going out looking for the materials they need, while sticking to their kids’ agenda, between homework and sport activities. Now, imagine how spot-on an online helper can be, providing all the necessary items and brand new ideas to transform home into a creepy horror film set that kids and adults will love and enjoy! There are many, of course, but when someone asks me, I always suggest to consult my friend Mariagrazia Tarantino – Grace, for friends -, who can make your Halloween (and any other events and parties) perfect while keeping an eye on your budget.
